Kinetic Games has done a fantastic job with Phasmophobia, and people are clamoring for future updates and content. Does Phasmophobia have a future roadmap for content?

Future Roadmap for Phasmophobia

Kinectic Games has published a new future roadmap for Phasmophobia of what they had planned to release in 2022 and what they have done. A lot has been pushed back into 2023, and more minor changes will be released rather than waiting six months for significant changes.

When are new maps coming to Phasmophobia?

Phasmophobia in the Apocalypseupdate will get eight new maps, five of which are smaller sections of larger maps released Sunny Meadows.

  • New Maps
    • Sunny Meadows- A mental institution expected to work similarly to theAsylum map.
    • Sunny Meadows Restricted- A division of the Sunny Meadows map cut up into five small maps.
    • Camp Woodwind- A small variation of the Campsite map.
  • Sunny Meadows- A mental institution expected to work similarly to theAsylum map.

  • Sunny Meadows Restricted- A division of the Sunny Meadows map cut up into five small maps.
  • Camp Woodwind- A small variation of the Campsite map.

New places will be developed alongside this update and released when they are completed, rather than released alongside significant updates.

The most recent update of the Small House map is

  • The Mansion, which by the sounds of things, could be massive.
  • The Apartment Building, so we think it'll be a smaller map for newer players to the game, or it might be based over in a complex, meaning it could ultimately become the biggest map in the game.

Progression update in Phasmophobia

The Progression update has been broken into a few smaller sections, and a lot of it has been pushed back into 2023. The first part, however, is turning into a separate update called the URP upgrade. The accurate Progression updates focus on revamping Phasmophobia at its core and creating new animations, models, and more from scratch.

This update will be released throughout the year in many smaller portions, usually in four to five smaller versions.

  • Optional objectives will be reworked to be more interesting, with varying rewards
  • Leveling will be completely reworked, with additional XP needed to reach higher levels
  • Once at the level cap, you will have the option to reset your rank in favor of gaining visual additions to your account (not decided as of yet)
  • Old save file conversion will be removed
  • All equipment will have new visuals
  • Most of the equipment is being rebalanced
  • Most equipment will be upgradeable, adding new gameplay features and visuals
  • Upgrades will only cost money to unlock, each "level" of equipment will cost the same (this means you can still use level 1 camera if you prefer the challenge or visuals)
  • Some equipment will become consumable (similar to sanity pills), upgrades increase "uses" so you have to buy them less (matches > cheap lighter > Zippo)
  • One new equipment item will now be used to find extra physical evidence for extra rewards
  • No one should risk their life for $10
  • All money and rewards will be updated to accommodate for the new equipment reworks
  • Finding the ghost type will reward the most money as it takes the longest
  • More dangerous optional objectives will reward more money / XP

Phasmophobia's URP Upgrade focuses on a variety of things, including new weather effects, lighting, and more. These areas will be completely overhauled in this update.
